This probably seemed like a lot more fun idea when they came up with it.
The real issue here is not Tyson because he's just being himself and we expect him to do things like swear on live TV.
The issue is the reporter who apparently wasn't listening to a word he said.
She didn't acknowledge the swear at all and somehow hears baseball out of "boxing and MMA."
Open your ears, Jill Martin. (5:34 mark on the link)
